LOA, Wayne County — Triple-digit temperatures may have been a factor in the death of a Missouri hiker in southern Utah.
Wayne County sheriff's officials say a man was found dead about 2 a.m. Wednesday off a trail in Horseshoe Canyon. Authorities say he was carrying only a camera, not food and water, and didn't appear to be ready for the heat.
The man was identified Thursday as David Ross Goodrich, 52, of Kansas City, Missouri. An autopsy is planned.
Officials say a group of hikers came upon Goodrich about 1 p.m. Tuesday, and he asked them for food and water. The group gave him supplies, and also directed another group of hikers to take his dog out of his car as he requested.
Rescuers were called when Goodrich hadn't returned to his car by 10:30 that night.
